FNwF - Calling All Birds

Friday Night with Friends

Firstly - thank you to Cheryll for letting us use her blog again to meet and stitch last night.
I will make the rounds later to see what everyone was up to.

I have been enjoying making Quilters Patch blocks, but I must admit that I am missing applique.
So, last night I started a new project, to run along side the Quilters Patch Quilt.
The forecast for the weekend was really good and I wanted to have something ready to stitch outside.

"Calling All Birds" is a quilt from the latest issue of Quiltmania Simply Moderne magazine; it got my attention the minute I open it.

That's what I was doing last night. Out came my collection of bright fabrics,

and I prepared the first block.

Today was a glorious day right from the start and up to dizzy heights of 19 - 20 C by midday; 
we even had our breakfast outside, first this year!
I took my block into the garden and stitched the prepared applique pieces.

We are expecting another great day tomorrow, so hopefully more stitching and even BBQ!

I hope you too are having a great weekend!
